Android 9 Pie update available for Pixel phones now

Android 9 Pie update available for Pixel phones now

Similarly, a feature called "slices" will pull in specific information from your apps and put it in front of you without the need to actually open the app. Also of note is that the Essential Phone is now receiving its update to Android Pie, which is a great move by Essential. I'm not exactly sad that Google passed up another branding opportunity - after Android Kit-Kat and Android Oreo, we didn't really need Android Pop-Tart - but would it have been that hard to have Android Pumpkin Pie? The Android 9.0 update will begin rolling out now to Pixel phones, and will be available later this year to other devices.

App actions is also a core part of this release that tries to predict what you will do next and display that action on the screen. You'll see a Google Search bar and your dock in the Overview as well. Google is ready to go with OTA files and full system images for the 2016 and 2017 Pixel devices. For example, Adaptive Battery aims to learn which apps you use the most and prioritize the battery life, so it can maximize power.

Those still skeptical over the leak need remember that the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL also launched on 4 October previous year, so the date does match usual Google plans.

Another feature that won't be arriving until this fall is the Digital Wellbeing service that was shown off at Google I/O in May. There's a new Do Not Disturb and a feature called Wind Down that'll combine Night Light and Do Not Disturb and also fade your screen to grayscale, all to help you get to sleep at night.

Not only that, but it seems the new navigation system for Android P is remarkably similar to the iPhone X's intuitive gestures.

Volume controls: Simpler, more accessible volume controls let you control media volume instantly, as well as quickly toggle call and notification volume settings. Swipe up from anywhere to see full-screen previews of recently used apps, swipe left and right to easily navigate between them, and tap on one to jump in.
